Hi, I have a singer confidence 7470 sewing machine and the needle keeps hitting the bottom of the bobbin. I need to know how I can adjust the needle.


Try a brand new needle. If the old one is bent, that could be why it is striking. If the new needle doesn't resolve the issue, the machine most likely has a timing issue. You can search for multiple web sites and videos for discussions and instructions for sewing machine timing issues. Or you can take it for service.

If you get it unjammed, be sure to install a new needle as the old one is probably damaged. If there are still issues, the machine's timing may be off and would need professional service.

I have a Confidence 7470 purchased in May 2009. I was sewing tulle today and the thread kept snapping while sewing. I assumed it was catching in the tulle. The last time it snapped, the thread jammed in...


Sounds like your machine is off timing, When the machine is properly timed, you should see the hook passing behind the eye of the needle when the needle is on it's upward stroke. If this is not correct the machine will not pick up the bobbin thread. You may have to take it in for adjusting, unless your a bit machnical.

I have a 5050c singer The bobbin case jump out and now the needle hits on the metal plate that is under the bobbin case. How do I fix this ?


I think that you have had the wrong size bobbin. It should be a class 66. Look in your manual, it should tell you. If, that is not it, call Singer at 1-800-4singer and ask if it sounds like the timing and if so where can you take it to get fixed. This is a nice machine, my friend, has one and it is worth getting fixed if you like it.

Take the machine in for service by an authorized Singer tech.

Hitting the bobbin case may have knocked the timing off and the shuttle may have to be replaced.

Trying to fix this yourself may lead to more problems and additional expense.

On the right of the black bobbin case there are two screws, you can slacken those screws off and move the bobbin case nearer to the guard leaving enough room for the thread to pass through, if the needle is hitting the bottom you may need to retime the machine.

Using Singer 7470 for the first time, and my bobbin thread is bunching terribly. There is a loud sound from the bobbin chamber, as if the mechanism is bouncing around??? How can I fix this bobbin issue?...


1. Take bobbin out and re-insert and thread.
If that dosen't work, try:
2. Take bobbin out and bobbin case, clean area and re-insert bobbin case and bobbin.
If that dosen't work, try:
3. Re-thread the top thread that goes to the needle. (Sometimes the thread dosen't hook to the "Thread take-up"(page 6 on manual). It pulls the bobbin thread and the bobbing becomes loose inside the bobbin case.
If that dosen't work, try:
4. Wind a new bobbin (Sometimes a bobbin might wind thread to lose) Do not wind thread to the edge of bobbin.
If that dosen't work, you should take it in to be serviced...Somenthing might become loose that only a technitian can correct.
Also check manual for troubleshooting.
Good luck.....
